Dean Robinson has been appointed to the role of executive chef at Heritage Hanmer Springs.
Robinson is a New Zealand born chef who was trained in the SPHC hotel group in the South Island before moving up to Auckland. After three years as head chef at Parnell’s Non Solo Pizza, he moved to Chile to take part in the opening of the Akarana Restaurant in Santiago for three years.
Most recently he has held the executive chef role at Peppers Bluewater Resort and joins the Heritage Hanmer Springs from Braided Rivers Restaurant and Bar. Robinson hopes his South American experience will add some spice to the Heritage Hanmer Springs menus, as will his history with VIP banquets, weddings and events.
